A very cool classic look that screams ANAMORPHIC-CINEMASCOPE. One of the sharpest Anamorphic lenses we've ever used. We've cleaned and refurbished this lens to a very mint condition and have added a few extras as well. Camera and SLR lens not included in this sale.

The lens attachment weighs under 1 lb, so no rail supports are necessary unless you plan to use longer and heavier SLR lenses. Lens photographed above varies slightly from actual lens.

Excellent Condition, Smooth Focusing, Very Rare 5 foot minimum focusing distance! Many Anamorphic lenses have 12, 15, 25 or even 50 feet minimums.

Very sharp. Includes Anamorphic Clamp Kit for mounting to DSLR and SLR Lenses. Guaranteed, unlike other sellers, no surprises here.

Also includes a 58mm Modified Front Filter Attachment to allow for use of filters and other accessories - A must!

Great for use on 55mm and closer/tighter focal lengths for APS-C Cameras like 7D, 60D, GH2, t2i, 550D, the Black Magic Cinema Cameras, The Digital Bolex, Red Cameras, etc.

Or for use 85mm and Higher on Full Frame Cameras like the 5D, 6D, 1D, Nikon D610, D800, etc.

(Using a 2x Anamorphic attachment with a 100mm SLR lens will give you a 50mm field of view in the end)

You will need to dual focus when using this lens (focus both the SLR and the Anamorphic lens).

 

Q: Why do you use these lenses over more newer modern Anamorphics? 

  1. These lenses are still much sharper edge to edge.
  2. Much less (to none) chromatic aberration.
  3. More affordable.
  4. A classic look and feel to your images.
  5. Unlike using newer 1.33x Anamorphic lenses that tend to still look almost spherical (mainly due to lack of 2x Anamorphic Bokeh and wider depth of field). When using a 1.5x, 1.75x or 2x lens, your footage will scream Anamorphic-CinemaScope to the viewer.

Many camera makers are beginning to catch on and give us 4:3 and other more "squarish" capturing ratios. Many videos are being broadcast in super-wider mode lately, but shooting Raw or with a higher bit rate allows you to crop so to achieve the ratio of your choosing (16:9, 2.35:1, 3.55:1, etc.)

Example videos filmed using this lens attachment.
